Long Valley Wolfpack play in the Morris Youth rugby league and invite kids from kindergarten through the 9th grade to join in this exciting and fast moving sport. Running, passing, kicking, teamwork and self confidence are a few of the things you will experience in this fast growing non-contact flag version of one of the most popular sports in the world.

TEAM HISTORY

In the summer of 2001 the Long Valley program was born. Following the now well-scripted formula for starting a community youth rugby program, they recruited 43 players for the best start yet for a new program. Since that inaugural year, the Long Valley program has continued to grow. For the past several years the Long Valley program has registered over 100 players ranging in age from 5 - 14 and in 2005 had a coaching team of 23 lead & assistant coaches, including several internationals from South Africa, Wales, France & England.

Long Valley has also been on the leading edge of introducing the tackle version of the game to both boys & girls at the Eagle level. Out of these summer tackle clinics came the core of the new Morris Girls U19 team now just finishing their second season as well as lots of new players for the Boys U19 team.

In 2004, Long Valley took a turn hosting what is now known as the American Youth Flag Festival - the end-of-season tournament where all the Flag programs get together and play rugby for hours! Long Valley has also established a relationship with the Warrington Wolves Youth Rugby program from Warrington, PA. The Wolves come up every summer to play in Long Valley in a mini-tournament with a couple of the other town programs. Long Valley also regularly hosts Youth teams from the Union County, NJ program.
